Indian Culture comes to Moray for Festival of Museums

AN INTERNATIONALLY RENOWNED storyteller is set to bring his unique style to Moray when he appears over two days at the Falconer Museum in Forres.

As part of the Festival of Museums on May 20 and 21, the Moray venue will be hosing their own ‘Indian Adventure’ in celebration of the UK Year of Indian Culture.

The Falconer is offering free sessions with Peter Chand – as well as Indian craft sessions with artist Marion Normand.

Sessions will each consist of 20 minutes storytelling and another 20 of craft, with six sessions taking place on each day from 10am until 4pm.

In addition on Sunday, May 21 (weather permitting) the museum is hosting a mini-festival or ‘Holi’ in Grant Park from 2pm. There will be more stories from Peter Chand, dancing with Caroline Bury, drumming with Dave Martin and food courtesy of Cardamom Spice.

Anne Owen for the Falconer said: “The festival will culminate in a colour run – for which old clothes are advisable – all are welcome.

“The Festival of Museums is a national celebration of The UK’s Museums and we are delighted to work with storyteller, Peter Chand and local artists on this exciting weekend of events.

“We also owe our special thanks to the ‘Project Arts Fund’, Findhorn Bay Arts.
